It is with very hearts that we must pass along some sad news. Hawkeye (Bob Jacobs) passed away on Sunday, May 8th after a battle with cancer. Hawkeye was a surfcaster legend and more importantly a great friend to all that knew him. The island will not be the same without him.

There will be a graveyard service for Hawkeye at 11 a.m. on Thursday May12th (this week) at the Oak Bluff cemetery. Afterwards there will be a pot luck gathering at Janet Messineo’s house, 77 Snake Hollow, to share stories and be together in this sad time, to celebrate the life of Robert Jacobs.
